Besides the venue, choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions that you will make during your wedding planning. After the wedding is over the wedding photos and videos are all that you have to remember the amazing day. You can look back at your wedding album, or your highlight film and have all those amazing moments come back to you, and get lost in the best day of your lives.
When you start the process of searching for a wedding photographer, you are going to stumble on a lot of options, that can be very overwhelming. You are going to have a huge range in quality, style and even price that is going to cause a lot of confusion. Larger photography companies have multiple photographers that work for them, and the pretty pictures that you saw on their website might have been taken by a completely different photographer.
A small photography company has a lot of positives that we will go over below.
Develop a Personal relationship
With large photographer companies, you are most likely going to have a photographer assigned to shoot your wedding. They could be looking for experience, trying to build a portfolio, or make extra money.
When you hire a local photographer, you will have the opportunity to develop that relationship from your engagement sessions all the way through to your wedding day. You are going to be able to go over all the details of the wedding day that are important to you, certain shots you want, and certain styles. You can be assured that you are both on the same page and will make your wedding day truly memorable.
